FILE - In this May 22, 1932 file photo, a crowd cheers Amelia Earhart as she boards her single-engine Lockheed Vega airplane in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, for the trip back to London. Three bone fragments found on a South Pacific island could help prove that Earhart died as a castaway after failing in her quest to circumnavigate the globe. Researchers told The Associated Press on Friday Dec. 17, 2010 that the University of Oklahoma hopes to extract DNA from bones found by a Delaware group dedicated to the recovery of historic aircraft. The fragments were recovered earlier this year on an uninhabited island about 1,800 miles south of Hawaii. less
